Linares, mining city par excellence, has been exploiting since its ancient past in the ibero-roman city of Castulo, its land, in order to extract its lead, one of the biggest economical resources and main basis of its culture and society. However, it was during the 19th century when it became one of the most important mining areas in the world. This fact was reflected on its singular industrial architecture and on its bourgeois society.
